Chris Tillman whiffed seven batters over seven frames of one-run ball in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.
The Bombers cut the Orioles' lead to 2-1 on a Starlin Castro RBI single in the second inning, but Tillman then retired 16 of the final 17 batters he faced. He yielded only four hits -- three singles -- on the day while walking two. The right-hander has gone seven innings and allowed just one run in each of his last four trips to the hill. He'll carry a 14-2 record and 3.18 ERA into outings against the Rockies and Blue Jays next week. Jul 21 - 4:34 PM

Chris Tillman held the Rays to one run over seven innings in a win Saturday.

Tillman scattered four hits and three walks, striking out three in the win. He's now ripped off three straight starts allowing one run over seven innings, improving to 13-2 with a 3.29 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. His 13 wins are second-most in the American League. Tillman will next face the Yankees on Thursday.
Jul 16 - 10:24 PM

Chris Tillman fought through inconsistency to pick up his 12th win of the season in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Angels, yielding one run on three hits over seven innings.

Tillman played with fire by walking five, but he managed to keep the mound mostly free of char marks by allowing just three hits on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came when Mike Trout notched an RBI double in the first inning. The 28-year-old right-hander will occasionally have to battle himself when it comes to his control -- he owns a 1.31 WHIP for his career -- but has mostly managed to keep those demons in check this season. In addition to his sterling 12-2 record, Tillman finishes out the first half of the 2016 campaign the owner of a 3.41 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 98/43 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings.
Jul 10 - 6:00 PM

Chris Tillman pitched well in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Dodgers, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings.

Not many strikeout pyrotechnics for Tillman in this one, as he fanned just two on the evening. He kept the Dodgers off the scoreboard well enough regardless, with only a first-inning RBI single by Adrian Gonzalez causing any real noise on his line. Tillman is set to carry a 3.55 ERA and 1.23 WHIP into a Sunday home start against the Angels before he hits the All-Star break.
Jul 6 - 1:33 AM

Chris Tillman struggled in Thursday's loss to the Mariners, surrendering four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

In general, this was just a drag of a start for Tillman. He walked three and struck out three on the evening, with Seth Smith accounting for half of the damage on his line with a two-run homer in the fifth inning. Tillman still holds a serviceable 3.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, but has allowed at least four runs in each of his last three starts. He will try to put an end to that trend in his final start before the All-Star Break, a road date with the Dodgers.
Jul 1 - 1:19 AM

Chris Tillman allowed 10 hits and six runs over five innings in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Tillman had a rough night, as his 10 hits and six runs given up were both season highs. He also walked two while striking out two. Even when he stumbles, Tillman can't seem to lose, as he's still 10-1 in 16 starts this year. The right-hander will carry a 3.52 ERA into Friday's start at the Mariners.
Jun 25 - 11:42 PM

Chris Tillman allowed four earned runs over five innings but the Orioles beat the Blue Jays on Sunday.

It was one of his worst starts of the season, but the Baltimore offense pounced all over Jays starter Marcus Stroman and kept that roll going against the Toronto bullpen in an eventual 11-6 win. Tillman walked none and gave up only five hits, but two of those five hits were home runs. He should be able to get back on track next time out in a home start against the Rays.
Jun 19 - 5:15 PM

Chris Tillman held the Red Sox to just one run over seven innings while recording seven strikeouts in Tuesday's 3-2 victory.

The Red Sox didn't get to Tillman until Jackie Bradley belted a solo home run with one out in the seventh inning. He gave up just five hits and two walks on the night, throwing a season-high 120 pitches. Tillman now boasts a 2.74 ERA over 19 starts in his career against the Red Sox, and he's got his ERA for this season back under 3.00 at 2.87. The righty will put his 9-1 record on the line on Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Jun 14 - 10:19 PM

Chris Tillman pitched masterfully to earn a win over the Royals on Wednesday night, slinging 7 1/3 innings of shutout baseball while whiffing a career high nine batters and walking none.

Tillman's excellent season rolls on. His record improves to 8-1 with a 3.01 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. The Royals mustered eight hits off Tillman tonight but a Cheslor Cuthbert double was the only extra-base hit they could manage. Last year's 4.99 ERA is looking more and more like an aberration as Tillman has been good in four of the past five years.
Jun 8 - 11:09 PM

Chris Tillman served up three home runs for the second straight start as he was saddled with a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.

Tillman gave up five runs in total on eight hits and a pair of walks over 5 2/3 innings, striking out five in the process. Carlos Beltran and Alex Rodriguez tagged him for back-to-back shots in the fourth inning, and Austin Romine added another the following frame. Even with his propensity to give up the big fly lately, Tillman still sits at 7-1 on the season with a 3.33 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday against the Orioles.
Jun 3 - 11:08 PM

Chris Tillman struggled to keep the ball in the park during Sunday's win over the Indians, allowing three home runs and four total runs over six innings.

Carlos Santana and Mike Napoli burned Tillman for a pair of home runs in the fourth inning. Napoli's was of the two-run variety. Jason Kipnis would hit a solo shot off the right-hander in the sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. Tillman has now allowed five home runs over his last three starts after surrendering just one dinger through his first seven outings. Despite his recent homer-happy ways, Tillman owns a smooth 2.92 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/27 K/BB ratio over 64 2/3 innings. He will hit the road for a date with the Yankees next time he toes the rubber.
May 29 - 4:33 PM

Chris Tillman held the Astros to two runs over seven innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

Tillman yielded just three hits and three walks, but a Luis Valbuena two-run homer in the fifth inning was enough to saddle Tillman with a no-decision. Still, it was the latest in a string of strong starts from the 28-year-old. Tillman now has seven consecutive quality starts dating back to mid-April, and the right-hander is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.13 WHIP overall. Tillman will try to keep the train rolling Sunday at the Indians.
May 25 - 12:55 AM

Chris Tillman struck out six and allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday’s win over the Mariners.

Just more of the same from Mr. Tillman. He whiffed a batter per inning yet again and tossed his fifth-consecutive quality start, picking up his sixth win of the season. The right-hander would probably like to re-do the 3-1 cookie he threw to Leonys Martin in the top of the third; nonetheless, he continues to impress in his bounce-back campaign. Tillman has a stellar 2.61 ERA with 53 strikeouts in just 51 2/3 innings. The Astros will come to town for his next start.
May 18 - 10:19 PM

Chris Tillman continued his impressive start to the season with seven scoreless innings in Friday’s win over the Tigers.

Tillman gave up just five hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. He has now allowed one earned run or fewer in five of his eight starts this season while striking out 47 batters in 45 1/3 innings. After giving up 20 homers in 173 innings last season, he has allowed just one so far this year. He’ll bring a 2.58 ERA into a start against the Mariners next week.
May 13 - 10:00 PM

Chris Tillman pitched well in Sunday's win over the A's, surrendering three runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Tillman struck out seven and walked four on the afternoon. He got the runs out of the way early, putting the O's in a 3-0 hole after one inning thanks to RBI hits from Yonder Alonso, Josh Reddick and Danny Valencia. That hole wouldn't last for long -- Baltimore scored 11 total runs before all was said and done. With the win, he improved to 4-1. Last season, Tillman held a 4.99 ERA, but he has more than turned that around through the first month-plus of 2016. The 28-year-old right-hander will carry a 3.05 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 40/16 K/BB ratio (38 1/3 innings, seven starts) into a home start against the Tigers next time he takes the mound.
